    Thank you for allowing me to print this document. He mentions several dialects of Cree that exist in Canada. Please tell me which dialect is being used in Solomon Ratt’s Beginner’s Cree document.

      Although Solomon is a Native speaker of the th-dialect, he has been teaching the y-dialect for decades. According to its introduction, this text book is in the y-dialect.
